It's interesting reading through everyones posts and a huge relief to discover that I'm not alone or going mad making up all these illnesses I seem to have, it's good to know they all are actually a result of HMS too!
The main problems in my ribs have recently started in work, I'll be sat at my desk and then at around lunch time the pain will start. It starts as a really dull ache at the back of my shoulder blades and then works its way into my rib cage. The bottom of my ribs feel so sore, like they are rubbing against something or as if they are being crushed. It's quite hard to describe pain exactly but I will say that it is a very uncomfortable sensation, not only will the ribs start to hurt but it then feels like it spreads right the way up through my shoulders and collar bone
Not nice when I'm trying to concentrate on my work, it makes me feel really aggitated and fidgity but no matter how I try and compose my posture, it doesn't feel better and will remain there all afternoon. I just try to forget about it but it can be a nightmare at times as I'm already suffering with my back in work.
Can anybody else relate to this type of pain or at least understand? I'm at my wits end trying to explain it to others as they don't have a clue!
Just to sum it up it generally feels as though the bottom of my shoulder blades and also my rib cage (mainly in the back which radiates to the front) feel soooo sore and achy, it feels as though I can't support myself! It's just a relief to know it's down to the HMS.
